Keeping you up-to-date: Local Land Charges moving towards a more digital future

In terms of conveyancing searches, the LLC1 and CON29 are synonymous with local authorities and currently, they are both usually submitted together. However, HMLR’s Local Land Charges Register consolidation programme will see LLC1’s, post data migration, being submitted to and completed by HMLR with only the CON29 going to local authorities.

Warwick District Council have been confirmed as the first Local Authority to complete the digitalisation of its Local Land Charges (LLC1) data from the 11 July 2018 with other English Local Authorities scheduled to follow over the coming months including Liverpool, Blackpool, City of London and Lambeth.

Thames Water Property Searches will continue to ensure that the CON29 and LLC1 are delivered together meaning our customers will not need to worry about this transition, whilst continuing to receive the high level of customer service we provide. Being a fully licensed channel of NLIS (The National Land Information Service), Thames Water Property Searches connect electronically with every Local Authority in England and the HMLR via the NLIS Hub meaning its customers will continue to receive a seamless service.

The National Land Information Service (NLIS) is a government approved and regulated, electronic land and property searches portal. NLIS connects users directly to land and property information held by local authorities, central government and other organisations that provide official sources of land and property data. It offers the highest standards of electronic property search accessibility available on the market today. Regulated by Land Data, it is the safest, most secure data hub within the property search information market.
